This year’s “Fast Auto Show Thailand” will be held from June 27 to July 1 at Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center (Bitec) and will feature both new and used cars for sale.
Organizers are expecting more than 250,000 visitors during the 5-day event at halls 105-106, with 2,300 new cars and 1,300 used cars up for sale.
This is the seventh year the event has been held.
Fifteen new car and motorcycle retailers and 16 used car dealers will be featuring their vehicles under the slogan “Pick the one you like, drive the one that’s right”.
Chairman of the organizing committee, Pattanadesh Asasappakij, said Thailand’s economy has shown continuous improvements this year.
“From the forecast of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, the Thai economy will grow from 4.2 to 4.6 percent this year, and similarly the automobile market is also experiencing growth,” he said.
“Auto companies have the potential to stimulate the market with new products and promotions, and generate sales growth. At the same time, consumers still consider automobiles an important part of life, so the highly attractive campaigns and promotions offered at the Fast Auto Show will definitely help boost sales for participating companies.”
Apart from the vehicles on sale, buyers can enjoy special promotions, both from the auto companies as well as Krungsri Bank which is offering offering 5 percent interest rate and an 84-month installment car loan plan, apart from gifts and fuel vouchers.
Pattanadesh said the event is intended to serve as a stage for buyers and sellers to meet, whether for new or old vehicles.
“No matter if it’s a new car or old car, buy or sell, you can came to the show.
“There are many [vendors] who will help you achieve your goal in a short time with all sides satisfied.
“There are a large number of sales promotions throughout the event whether from the exhibitors or finance companies,” he said. “We are confident that the Fast Auto Show will benefit the country’s auto industry during the midyear period and also help stimulate Thailand’s economy.”
